The fate of Mexican painter and muralist Diego Rivera is connected to Russia in a number of ways: Russian painters Angelina Belova and Maria Vorobyova-Stebelskaya gave birth to his children; he was Trotsky's long-time friend; he joined the Communist Party for several years; and he was in friendly relations with major figures of the young Soviet art movement, such as Eisenstein, Mayakovsky, Erenburg. Finally, Soviet Russia is where Diego Rivera came during the last years of his life with the hope of healing his cancer. This film explores the connection between the painter born in the faraway Mexican village of Guanjuato and the young Soviet state.
